The Director stated his reasons for believing that it 
would be wise on many accounts to change the narae of the Station 
to the Massachusetts Experiment Station and that such change would 
require an act of the legislature. General approval of the change 
was expressed, but no formal action was taJcen as the Director was 
not ready to suggest the exact name which the Station should in

it for its new uses, the Committee adjourned.

MEETIIjq OF EXPERIMENT STATION COIvOvIITTEE. 
BOSTON, MASS., JUNE IS, 1909» 



present: Messrs. Preston, Elloworth, Laiaon, Pollard, President 
Butterfield, and Director Brooks. 

The meeting was called to order by the Chairnan, J.tr. Preston. 

Director Brooks stated in considerable detail his views 
relative to vrork in Massachusetts b3'- the United States Depart- 
ment of Agriciilture. He expressed his conviction that the policy 
should be to endeavor in all possible v/ays to secure cooperative 
rather than independent work. An informal expression of vievrs 
from some of the members of the committee present was in general 
favorable to the policy advocated by the Director. 

The Director next called attention to the fact that the 
agreement ?;ith Dr. Galloway relative to cooperative Y,'ork with 
asparagus in Concord had been somewhat modified. The modifica- 
tions agreed upon, without giving up any of the advantages se- 
cured by the original agreement, provide that the Department of 
Agriculture, to the extent of a sum not exceeding tl,000 will 
meet the local expenses of the T7ork in breeding for the produc- 
tion of new varieties. 

The Director then presented the agreement which had been 
provisionally adopted bety^eon himself, representing the station, 
and Dr. Galloway, representing the Bureau of Plant Industry, De- 
partment of Agriculture, and also the form of agreement between 
the Director and individual growers who are to conduct experi- 
ments on tobacco, and it was 



S. Con. - 2. Jiine 1?;, 1909 • 

voted : To ratify these agreoments. 

The Director called attention to the convention of the 

American Association of Agrictiltural Oolleges and Experiment 

Stations to be held in Portland, Oregon, August ISth to 20th, 

and it was 

voted: To authorise the Director to attend this convention 
as a representative of the Station. 

The question of sending a second delegate was discussed, 

and it was 

voted: That the Director be authorized to arrange for a 
second delegate, providing one could be found to 
attend in consideration of a sum not to exceed 
I25. from the Experiment Station. 

The Director called attention to the convention of Agricul- 
tural Chemists to be held in Denver, Colorado, August 26th to 
2^th, and presented Dr. Lindsay's letter relative to s'ending a 
delegate. 

VOTED: That on account of the large expenditure required 
to send delegates to the convention in Portland, 
the Station do not send a delegate to Denver. 

The Director stated the nature of the contents of the bul- 
letin on "Bee Keeping in Massachusetts" which is to be published 
by the courtesy of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. No vote 
was passed, but the members of the coraiuittee expressed their ap- 
proval of the publication. 

The Director gave an account of recent conferences and cor- 
roGpondence relative to experimental work with cranberries in 
the Cape district. He reported the movement on the part of the 
committee representing the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers' Associa- 
tion to collect funds to help meet .-he expenses of such experi-

mental work, and read a letter from the secretary of the legis- 
lative conmittee stating that about s?SJ^O. had been already prom- 
ised, and that more v;ould probably be raised. After some dis- 
cussion, it was 

VOTED: That the Director be authorised to engage Dr. H. J. 
PranK-lin for experimental worK with cranberries 
and such other work as it may seem best to place 
in his charge for the period of one year, to begin 
some time in September, at an annual salary of 
$1625.00 

The Director presented the plans and estimates for addi- 
tions to and modifications of the chemical laboratory of the 
experiment station. The plans met Y;ith general approval and 
it was 

VOTED: That the committee approve the general plans and 

estimates presented, and recoramend to the trustees 
that the next Legislature be asked for an appro- 
priation of §20,000. for the purpose of carrying 
out the plans. 

After some further general discussion relative to a number 
of station matters not followed by any formal action, the com- 
mittee adjourned. 

Win. P. Brooks, 
3. Acting Secretary.

Asparagus substation at Concord 
Graves' Orchard at South Amherst 

Cranberry experiments v^ith fertilisers at Falmouth 
Cranberr3' insect v/orK at Warehara and vicinity 
Cost of Fertiliser Control. (Here Secretary Ellsworth 
read a letter from IV. D. Ross of the firm of Ross Bros, of V/or- 
cester, urging that the collection of samples, analyses and 
publication of results for fertilisers, should be made be- 
fore the season when sales chiefly ta.ke place. The Director 
stated some of the leading reasons why it would be difficult 
or almost impossible to do this, and without vote, the letter 
was placed in his hands for reply). 

Department resources, expenditures, and balances. 
(Sheets 1, 2, 3, ^, hereto appended). 

The Director presented a statement of the publications of 
the year and their cost. (Sheet 5). 

The Director reported the employment with the approval of 

President Butterfield of Mr. Carl D. Kennedy, a graduate of 

the New Hampshire Agricultural College, as assistant chemist 

on trial, at a salary of $S00. per year, beginning October 

15th, Mr. Kennedy having been employed chiefly In research 

chemical work under the direct oversight of Mr. Holland. 

It was 

VOTED : To ratify this action of the Director and to 
authorize him to make the emplo^anent of Mr. 
Kennedy permanent. 



Dert. Jan. 5, lom. 

2. 

The Director reported the employment of Mr. J. F. Merrill 
as esslstant ohemlst to take the place of Mr. P. V. aoldemlth 
(reslfined to accept a better position), at a salary of ^QOO. 
per year, beglnring December 10th, this action havirg been taken 
v>'lth the approval of the President. It was 

VOTED : To ratify this action. 

The Director presented an analysis showing estimated ex- 
penditures under existing arrangements of the Adams Fund moneys 
up to Jvay 1st next (Sheet 6) and explained the desirability of 
an additional chemist to engage in research vrork, especially in 
investigations in connection i^ith asparagus, ard recommended the 
emplo^mient of Mr. Fred W. Morse , until recently chemist in the 
Nev/ Hampshire Experiment Station, from the period beginning Jan- 
uary 1^, loio, to July 1, 1^10 ; Mr. Morse to work for the pres- 
ent at least, fovir and one-half days each ?/eek, and to be paid 
at the rate of $2000. per year for full time. It was 

VOTED : To authorize the em.ployment of Mr. Morse. 

The Director next eplained the desirability of an additional 
assistant In the department of Botany, dependent chiefly upon 
the necesBltj'' that m.ore research v/ork should be done in the de- 
partment, and recominended the employment of an assistant at a 
salary of not to exceed ^-50. per month from July 1st next. It 

was 

VOTED: To authorize the employment of such an assistant. 

The Director presented a letter from the secretary of the 
legislative committee of the Gape Cod Cranberry arowers' Associa- 
tion (Mr. L. B. P. Barker) announcing the passage of a vote by 
that committee Instructing the TreasiTrer of the Association to 



Jan. •?. 1^10. 

collect the srims pledged hy the growerB for the support of ex- 
perimental work, and to turn the amount over to the Treasurer 
of the Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station, to be used 
for work in cranberry investigation, and stated that the amount 
coming from this source is likely to be ISOO. to tl,000. It was 
moved and 

VOTED: That the Director be authorized to accept this 
money and to use it for the purposes in view. 

(For copy of letter, see Sheet 7). 

The Director stated reasons why it seems wise to transfer 
Harry J. Allen, employed in the Chemical Department, to the sal- 
ary list, and it was 

VOTED: To do this. 

The Director called attention to the finani^ial resources of 

the station for the current year (Sheet 0), andthe recommended 

increases in salaries as shown by Sheet 9 hereto appended. It 

was 

VOTED: That the increases recommended in the cases of 

Messrs. Howard and Reed, be authorized; but that 
action on the balance of the recommendations be 
delayed until the June meeting. 

On motion of the Director, it was 

VOTED: That all department balances should be cancelled. 

The Director presented his recomm.endations covering the 

financial apportionment to the departments and for different 

purposes from December 1, 190Q, to December 1, I'^IO. (Sheet 10). 

It was 

VOTED : To approve this apportionment and the total recom- 
mended for salaries as shown on Sheet P, previously 
referred to. 



If. J-an. ^, I'^in. 

The Director explained the nature of the deiaand for expert 

services requiring visits for examination of faria lands, and 

stated that in his judgment persons receiving such services 

should 1)6 given an option of contributing to the treasury of 

the Experiirjent Station such suras as they see fit in recognition 

of the value of such services, and he presented a form of letter 

to be sent to such persons. It was 

voted: To authorize the Director to make a trial of 
this plan. 

It was suggested that it might be well to send the letter before 

the service was rendered rather than after. (Form of letter on 

Sheet 11). 

The Director stated his reasons for believing that experi- 
ments with alfalfa should be conducted, the expense to be borne 
by the agricultural department of the Experiment Station. It was 

VOTED : To authorise him to carry out this plan. 

The Director presented a tentative form of agreement de- 
signed to provide for the conditions under which cranberry grow- 
ers should contribute to the expense of the experimental \"ork 
on cranberries, and the conditions under which such work should 
be carried on. (Sheets 12, I3, Ih). It was 

VOTED: To authorise the Chairman (Mr. Preston), Secretary 
Ellsworth, and the Director to execute an agreement 
along the general lines of the tentative form with 
any rosponsinle body of cranberry growers. 

The Director explained the reasons v/hy it seems advisable 

to reverse the scheme of niuabering the two parts of the annual 

report of the Experiment Station, and stated that this would not 

change the nature of either part, nor the use made of them, the 



Jan. 5, loio. 

change in question being simpl^'- clerical. It was 

VOTED : To authorize him to attempt to have this change 
made, either on the authority of the chairman of 
the Board of Publications, or by an amendment of 
the act relative to the publication of the report 
of the Fxperiment Station. 

The Director explained the desirability of the passage of 

an act providing for the inspection of apiaries and the control 

of bee diseases. It was 

VOTED: That the Committee recom-'-nend to the whole Board 

that it favor the enactment of such a law, and to 
authorize the Director to appear before any commit- 
tee of the Legislature having the matter under 
consideration. 

There was an informal discussion of the question of the 
desirability of the passage next year of a seed law. 

The Director stated his feeling that it would be desirable 

to make Dr. J. B. Lindsey vice director of the Station, and It was 

VOTED: To recomiiiend to the fiill Board that Dr. Lindsey 

be made vice Director of the station without addi- 
tional salary.

Present: cbalmejs Proston, Mr. Pollard and Director 
Brooks . 

Bireetor Brooice called ir. i, ©ration to the fact that 
advert Isa'nerts as>:ir.g' Tot descriptions and, proposals ror 
crtinberi^/ bogs tor experiment ai pucri^osoo hacl beer, inserted 
iv. tho ?7areham courier* Mid'-'ieooro Oaaotte and Old colony 
MeKor-ial of Plyniouth* in ac:-ordance with tlic vote or the 
co'ninitto^a at the seating held In V/areham, J\me l^i-th. (copies 
of said advert irseaents nei-eto armex©cl. Exhibit A). 

He etated that as a res^ilt of thin advert ieesnent 
only one proposal had been received ♦ i.e. frcm H. H. washb-or n 
in LaXeville* and that oi3tio:is had fceon seciired on t?2e aarsh 
and Agawam Fann company boge a,« voted by tho connittee at the 
neeting above-mentioned. (coraep of said propoeal and said 
option? hereto ai-riioxod, "Exhibits B- and D). 

The co:nniitt08 f irs^t coneidered the proposals for 
the Lakeviile bog* but it waa decided that although It v/ould 
seerj to be best to extuitlne the 00^:, it vrould be poorly suited 
for the expei'iiuents in view on aecount of the fact that it 
waa pliinted irith relatively ijn^.oTsm and poor varieties, and 
doep- rot ooiitain any of the most irrportant of all varieties , 
the Ho-y?Q. 

The relative adY£ii:;taise8 and dinadvantagef? of t^e 
Marnh and AgavTa'n Con}?any properties -^ere then exhcuBtivsly 
connidered. I'he decision i-eached by the coi^mittee waD that 
the Mar eh bog \:'as nmch inferioi' to the Aga'sfWi Farm Coinpany 
bog, esi^oeially in the following partic\il:-r3: 



-2- 

(1) Less even in character of bottom and condition of 
vines and not therefore offering so good a basis for experi- 
ment as the Agawam Farm Company bog. 

(2) Varieties apparentl3'" impure or mixed. 

(3) Water supply, ?/hile moderate, possibly uncertain in 
excesFlvel3'- dry weather, v/hile conditions affecting it are 
such that there seems considerable possiblliti/ that questions 
difficult of solution relative to the respective rights of 
different parties will be likely to arise at critical times. 

(h) Joint ovmership in the screen house proposed seems 
ll}:ely to be unsatisfactory. 

(5) Certain reservations as to rights of way and joint 
use and maintenance of dikes seem undesirable. (Por state- 
ment of conditions affecting maintenance of reservoir and use 
of water see copy of agreement between the parties v;ho con- 
structed the reservoir and originally shared the use of the 
water. Exhibit E). 

The various conditions affecting the v/aters of Spec- 
tacle Pond in their possible relations to the supply'- for the 
Agawam Farm Company bog were then most thoroughly,'- considered. 
The Director made a full statement of the results of his in- 
vestigations in the offices of the commissioners of Harbor 
and Land, and corporations. Briefly stated, these condi- 
tions appeared to be as follows: 

(1) Spectacle Pond is a great pond and under the juris- 
diction of the Commissioners on Harbor and Land. (See c^'^ap. 
31s Acts and Resolves of Mass. for 1^3^, also chap. 96, Reviseti 
Statutes of Mass.) 



_3- 

(2) The Agav/am 'Farm Company tal-ves vater to supply its 
cranberry bog from the pond, raising it by p-umplng a distance 
of four or five feet . 

(3) Said Agawam Farm Company has obtained no license 
from the commissioners to use water as above stated; but its 
property abuts on the pond and it appears to be a common 
practice imder such conditions for property ovmers to use 
the water of such ponds without securing a license, provided 
there is no objection and it does not appear that there has 
ever been objection to the use of water above referred to by 
the Agav^^ara Farm company. 

m) There is in existance a license granted In 1^95 to 
HannaH F. Rogers and others to taXe water for the irrigation 
of a cranberry bog shovm in the diagram accompanying the pe- 
tition for a license, the area of which is about 13 acres. 
Water to supply this bog flov/s to it through an artificial 
channel by gravity and is therefore diverted from its natural 
v/ater shed to another v/ater shed, since it Is never returned 
to the water shed from which it is talcen. (For copy of 
license above referred to see Exhibit F). 

It appears further that a protest against the grant- 
ing of this license was entered as a matter of record by the 
Tremont Nail company, through its treasurer, Horace P. Tobey. 
For this protest see Exhibit G). The coraralssloners have 

never taXen any action on this protest. 

The Director stated his conviction, v;hich appeared 
to be shared by the members of the committee present , as well 
as by Dr. Franlclin and Mr. John c. Makepeace, who had been 
consulted, that the draught on the waters of the pond to sup- 
ply the Rogers bog was of no importance in its effect upon 



f 



4 



|t 



-I4- 
the supply available for the Agawara Farm company. 

(5) Examination of the records in the office of the 
CoirnnlBsioner!^ on Harbor and Land showed that the charter of 
the Tremont Nail company granted them no rights in Spectacle 
Pond. 

(6) After examination of JndexeB to legislation affect- 
ing corporations, the member of the commission on corpora- 
tions stated that there had been no special legislation grant- 
ing rights in Spectacle Pond to said Tremont Nail company. 

(7) The Director stated that investigation and state- 
ments of interested parties, especially of Marcus L. Urann , 
representing the Agawam Reservoir, PO¥/er and Irrigation com- 
pany, indicated that this com.pany v/hich v/ould appear no\"; to 
be affiliated with, or virhioh perhEips controls the Tremont 
Nail company, claims certain rights in Spectacle Pond, v;hich 
through the construction m.any years ago of a ditch or canal con- 
necting it with the Agawan Mill Pond, appears to serve _ in some 
measure as a storage reservoir and feeder to the power plant 
originally controlled by the Tremont Nail company v/hich was or- 
ganized under the general law of the cominonv/ealth in 1^59* 

i&) The commissioner on Corporations after examination 
of the charter of the Tremont Nail company stated that this 
charter granted the company no rights in Spectacle Pond. 

(9) After consultation of his indexes the commissioner 
reported further that there had been no legislation granting 
rights in Spectacle Pond to said Tremont Nail company! 

(10) Investigation in the office of the com^nlssion on 
corporations involving examination of the charter of the Aga- 
wara Reservior, Power and Irrigation company showed that 



-5- 
this charter gave that company no rights in Spectacle Pond. 

(11) The commissioner stated, after examination of his 
Indexes, that there appeared to have been no legislation 
granting any rights in Spectacle Pond to the Agav/am Reservoir, 
Power and Irrigation company. 

(12) The Director stated that Mr. Marcus L. Urann , above 
referred to, had stated to him that the rights of the Agawam 
Reservoir, Power and Irrigation company in Spectacle Pond by 
virtue of the connection between it and Agawam Mill Pond 
above referred to (See 7) would maZ-ce It possible for that 
company to taXe such action as would lower the water in Spec- 
tacle Pond some four or five feet, but it was the conclusion 
of the Director, manbers of the cominittee , Dr. FranK.lin , and 
Mr. Malcepeace that the fact that such rights exint does not 
appear to be established and further that even if they do exist 
and should be exercised, there would still be an ample puppli'- 
of v/ater in Spectacle Pond for the irrigation of the crcnberry 

bog of the Agawam Pfirm company. The onl3'- difference betv/een 
the condition which v/ould exist after the exercise of such 
rights should they be found to exist and that at present ex- 
isting is that it would be necessary to raise the water a 
somev/hat greater distance in order to turn it on to the bog. 
The mem.bers of the comjnittee visited and ca.rel*i;i.lly 
examined the bog of the Agav/am Teocm Company and saw the 
pumping machinery started ajid In operation. The unanimous 

conclusion of all was that the bog was thoroughl3'- satisfactory 

in every way and after careful consideration of all the possi- 
bilities which appeared to be connected with the right to use 
water from Spectacle Pond, It war unanimously 



-6- 

VOTED: TO authorize the Director to accept the option 
on this iDOg which had "been extended, until 
jT.ay 12th by a letter from Silas N. Besse, 
representing the Agawam Farrn company. (Exhibit 
H) provided further lnve8tigation on the part 
of either Mr. M. P. Diclcinpon or such lav/yer 
as he might se^i fit to employ eatinfied him 
that the title which could be conveyed by the 
Agavi/ara Farm company is good and provided fur- 
ther that there shall appear to be r,z undesir- 
able complications not revealed by the examina- 
tions already made affecting the supply of 
water available for use on the bog.

The Director stated that Mr. George H. Chapman, an 
asfsistant In the department of botaiiy and vegetalDle pathology 
under Dr. Stone, v/ho has been engaged for Bome time in research 
worK. as to the causes of mosald disease of tobacco and tomatoes, 
had received an offer from the Nev/ Jersey Experiment Station 
carrying with it a much larger salary than that which Mr. 
Chapman now receives here, and that imless the station could 
give Mr. chapman an increase in salary, his resignation would 
surely follow. The Director pointed out the great loss to 

the station which the departure of Mr. chapraan involved, 
stated that Dr. Stone vras exceedingly anxious to retain him 
and that after full consideration of all the conditions 
affecting the case with President Butt erf leld, the latter 
had authorized him to say that the President waived v/hatever 
objections he had had in the past based upon considerations 
affecting the general policy of administration, as he fully 
recognized the value of Mr. Chapman's services to the station 
and the loss v/hlch his departure would involve. The Director 

stated that Mr. Chapman v/ould make a three-years' contract on 
the basis of $l600 per year, and it v/as un.animously voted to 
authorize the Director to maXe such a contract. 





Acting Secretary. 



Note. 



The Director on July 6th consulted with the other members 
of the committee, J. Lewis Ellsworth, Harold L. Frost, and 
Charles E. Vfard by telephone and each in turn signified his

these consultations that after talking the matter over further 



-&- 

v/lth Mr. Cliapman, the latter signified that thlp arrangement 
would, te acceptable and that he had decided upon mal-cing a con- 
tract on the follov/ing 1)3818:

This modification of the terms of the contract mal-ces the total

tion.

MEETING OP TlIE COiailTTEE ON EXPERIMENT STATION 
Boston, Mass., Ja.n . fj , 1911. 



PRESENT: Messrs. Preston, Ellworth, Pollard, Frost, President 
Butterfleld and 'nirector Brooks. 

Director Brooks stated that he desired to present for 
consideration a draft of a revised fertilizer law which he 
v/ished to introduce in the Legislature daring its corning ses- 
sion. Mr. \V. H. Bowker, who at his request had been invited 
to be present, asked to be iieard in tne interest of fertilizer 
manufacturers on certain features of the j)roposed law. Per- 
mission having been granted Mr. Bovi/ker discussed and criticized 
particularly the following points in the proposed law: 

Section 2. The words, "which is untrue in a.n}/ particular!' 

Section 5. and all other sections in which they occur 
the Y/ords, "for the use of the station." Also in Section 5 he 
objected that as written it might by implication be concluded 
that the results of free analysis of fertilizers were to be 
published and it Aveis suggested that the words, "of official 
samples" be inserted after the word "analysis" in the last 
sentence, in the section. 

Section 6. The use of the words, "as duplicate samples" 
and it was provisionally agreed to strike out these words and 
to insert tne word "intact" after the word "held" in tjiis sec- 
tion. In the same section the inclusion of the words in the 
first sentence, "whenever the circumstances conveniently permit" 

TJie prpposal to require under the law as i^rovided in Sec- 
tion 5 the publication of the cost of equivalent a2nounts of 
nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash was the subject of prolonged 



discussion, TTr . Bowker strongly opposing. 

There was considerable discussion upon nearly all 
points raised by ITr. Bowker but no votes were taken. 

President P,uLterfield read two new sections which he 
stated he v/ould like to have considered. These were as follows: 

Section 9, The enforcement of the provisions of this 
Act shall lie with the Trustees of the Massachusetts Agricultuj?- 
al College and wherever in the Act the words Director of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station or Director are 
used, they are to be construed as authorizing this officer to 
act as the executive officer of the trustees of said college, 
under their authority and by their direction, in enforcing the 
provisions of this Act. 

Section 10. All fees collected under the provisions of 
this Act shall be turned over to the Trea^surer of the Ma.ss- 
achusetts i^gri cultural College and the amounts received and 
disbursed sliall be kept in a separate account and shall be 
audited and rejiorted as are a.ll other raonies placed in charge 
of the Trustees of the College. 

This would involve changing present Section 9 to 
Section 11 s,nd Section 10 to 12. 

The Meeting adjourned at a little after eleven 

A.M. to reconvene at one P .11. 

Afternoon Session . 

PHESEITT: Messrs .Preston, Ellsworth, Pollard, Prost, V/ard, 

and Director Brooks. 

The Director and Mr. Preston reported having had a 

conference with the lawyer who had been consulted as to the 

legal form of the proposed law, and the Director proposed as a 



- 3 - 

means of a.ccoinoliGhing the objects in viev/ in the proposed 
Section 10 presented by President Butterfield and also meeting 
Mr. Bovifker's v/ishes as stated in his objection to the words, 
"for the use of the Station" in Section 5, £.nd elsewhere, strik- 
ing out those words wherever they occur and the adoption of 
a nevi Section 8 as follows: 

Section 8. All fees collected by the Director of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station under the pro- 
visions ef this Act shall be turned over by the Director to 
the Treasurer of the said station, and the amounts received 
and disbursed shall be kept in a separate account and shall 
be audited and reported as are other monies placed in charge' 
of the Trustees of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

The monies collected under this Act shall be used 
to meet the expenses connected with its execution and should 
there be a surplus, said surplus shall be used for experi- 
ments o,nd research relative to soils , fertilizers and manures. 

After discussion it was 

VOTED: Hot to include the la.st paragraph of this pro- 
posed section. 

The Director stated that the lawyer very strongly 

advised against adopting the proposed new Section 9 on the 

grounds: 

)l) As being entirely unnecessary as the Director being 

appointed by the Trustees it must be understood with- 
out so stating in the Act that he derives his authority 
from them. 

(2) Tha,t such a provision would be highly inadvisable as 

it would undoubtedly greatly increase the difficulties 
in the execution of the law and for other reasons. 

ITo vote on the adoption of the Proposed Section 9 

was taken. After general discussion it was 

VOTED; To recommend to the full Board that the Director 
be authorized to introduce in the Legislature the 
draft for the fertilizer law hereto appended 
(Exhibit a) . 

The Director then presented draft for revised law 
to take the place of Section 55 to 69 of Chapter 56 of the Re- 
vised Laws. This was read and discussed section by section 



4 - 



and it Avas 

VOTED : To recoinmend to the full Board that the Director 
be ci.uthorized to introduce the Act in the form 
hereto appended (Exhibit B) . 

Tlie Director read letters from Horatio Hathaway , Jr . 
and Senator Lodge in relation to experiments designed to en- 
courage insectivorous birds with a view to suppressing the 
brown tail and gypsy moths and asking the co-operation of the 
station in order to secure duty free admission of needed s-p- 
pliances . After, discussion it v/as 

VOTLD: To authorize the Director to make any arrange- 
ments for co-operation satisfactory to him and 
not involving expenditure of station funds. 

The Director referred to the advisability of having 

a copy of the Revised Statutes in his office library and it 

was 

VOTED; To authorize purchase of copy now Director's 

piersonal property, provided he finds after ap- 
plication in the proper quarter therefore that 
it is imxjossible to secure a free copy. 

After brief discussion v;ith no formal action onone 

or tv/o other matters the meeting was Adj ourned .

To the Cormaittee on l^ixperiraent Utution: 

I have the iionor to Bubrait to you a Biiatemont 
of the finaiices of uie -i.xperiuent tjtation which includes 
tlie following itexas: 

liiUtiL'iated reuourcea for tlic year extenuing frora 
jJeceiri!-.er 1, l^JlZ to iJoveiiiLer 50, 1U13. 

Ketirflaiieu expenditures for the Jiaiae period. 

^lascified apportioniaents for tiic year. 

iieports of tiie expenditureu for the pai^t year as 
■follows; 

AijparaguB bulibtation. 

Cranberry iiubstation. 

if'ecd Inspection. 

Fertiliser Inspection. 

Graves* Orchard iiubsuation. 

ijpecial ■'Appropriation for team. 

(Pincuncial titateiiCnt Appended) 

The f ollowintj matters are deemed -/orthy of your 
consideration at tliis time; 

kr. J. v/.tinith, jJirector of the Jilew iiingland 
tiection of tlie U. ii, V<eather ■i-'ureau, is ready to recomiaend 
the establictoacnt of p, special station of the iiureau at 
the Juxperiuent. iitatxon on our applicatiun for tlie :;a;:ie. 
Tiie iiurcau will pay a.^out >^00.00 per year for takinti the 
observations and will furnish sucli stti.ndard instruments 
aij laay ue needed. it \.'ouli.i '.j.;,.;! to laake uac ux A^uwru- 

ments owned by tlie Jixperii/ient i.jtation, if uuch are standard. 



The Experiment Station would have the same control over 
its records that it now has, end vi/ould be relieved of 
the expense for students' services and for new instruments 
as they become necessary. 

Favorable action is recommended. 

In connection with the herd-testing for advanced 
registry, it is soraetiraee advantageous and even necessary 
to detail someone from the station-staff, usually Mr. 
Howard, to do the work for a few days. Mr- ^mith, who 
has charge of the work, desires the privilege of allowing 
pay for any Sunday work so performed, in addition to the 
regular salary.; of the employe. The special men engaged 
for the ?/ork, draw pay for every day engaged. 

Favorable action is recommended. 

In the conduct of the work of the cranberry- 
substation, it is necessary every month of the working- 
season, to employ day-labor, and such labor must be paid 
weekly. Dr. Franklin, in charge, has regularly advanced 
the money for these payments, and in harvest-time such an 
advance is heavy. It would be a convenience for Dr. 
Franklin to draw cash each month, from the Treasurer, on 
a requisition, sufficient to meet the labor-roll, and 
such sundry items as naed cash payments. 

Favorable action is recommended. 






^ 



Dr. Franklin has been requested by the Smith 
& Hammond Co. to co-operate with them in the management 
of their bogs. The plan in brief is to pa.y Dr. Franklin 
for managing a group of their bogs in Falmouth and vicinity, 
the payments to go toward the salary of an assistant at 
the Sub-Station. The advantages of such an arrangement 
would be the relief of Dr. Franklin from routine at the 
bog, which could be just as well done by a cheaper man, 
and the development of Dr. Franklin by a wider field for 
observation and experience as a superintendent. The 
Experiment Station would, however, stand in the position 
of providing one company with an expert's services, which 
it might find difficult and even impossible to extend 
to others who might be v/illing to pay for it. 

It has been found necessary to amend the 
Fertilizer Law, in order to prevent certain foreign 
corporations doing business through traveling agents 
without first paying license fees and filing statements. 
This matter is noviT in the hands of Mr. Fitz-Henry Smith, Jr. 
who is preparing the amendments needed. 

In accordance vfith the vote of the Committee a 
Seed Law has been prepared and is appended. This law 
has been drafted in conference v/ith Dr. Stone and meets 
his idea.s of the needed legisla-taon. 

Dr. Lindsey. has handed me a written communica- 
tion, which I have indorsed and appended.
